For this Valentine you will need:
- the printable found at the end of this post
- Toy Cars (we used these provided by Oriental Trading)
- bakers twine
- a single hole punch
Print and cut out the paper valentine. Have you child address them to each child in their class. Using the single hole punch, punch a hole on either side of the valentine.
String a piece of bakers twine through both holes to make a loop. Slide the car through the loop. Tie the twine in a bow on the back of the card to secure the car to the card.
All of the kids in the class are going to love having a fun card and car to play with!

I simply adore candy free valentines. Even more, I love ones that can be played with and recycled. It cuts down on clutter.

These are really fun! I am always looking for alternatives to candy valentines and I know lots of little guys who would go crazy for these!
I am LOVING these DIY creative valentine card projects! These are so much more fun, and I'm sure the kids go crazy for them.

How cute is that? They would be great for young boys, or for a NASCAR fan. These are really neat.

This is so so cute. Although if a boy told me 11 year stepdaughter she makes his heart race my husband may not like it too much LOL (me neither)!
Terri Steffes says
When I have grandkids, can I just hire you to do all my parties and crafting? You are amazing.
